Fans of soccer, kindness and fresh-baked cookies will soon be without one of their most beloved advocates. Ted Lasso, the fictional soccer coach who has charmed television viewers with puns, gentle humor and the occasional locker room brawl, takes his leave on Apple TV on May 31.

The three seasons of the show, which focused on the travails of an American football coach hired to turn around a flailing British soccer team, traced the growth and transformation of many of the characters, especially the young players who navigated their success through pitfalls of cockiness, self-doubt and racism to find their voices on the team and in their lives. One constant, however, was the pink box of “biscuits for the boss” that Ted presented to the team’s owner, Rebecca, every morning.
